On a rainy day, we we did an all-day walk of the townsite. We saw approximately half of the buildings listed in the Walking Through Banff’s History leaflet (self-guided tour). Part of our walk was along the Bow Falls Trail to Bow Falls.

A very nice scenic place to go while in Banff. It is a little way from the main street so I recommend driving here. Parking can be difficult at times. Well worth the visit.

It is a major world tourist spot and it is free to visit. So if you are in Banff, you pretty much need to see this so you can say you did. Not the greatest but it is well known. I have been about 20 times and I do go out of my way to stop and see it again.

Absolutely beautiful! Must see! Though frozen (mostly) it was a great view and the guide we had was super knowledgeable!

Having visited these lovely falls in summer 2016, we went back on New Year’s Day to find them completely frozen and being able to walk on the river!!! Beautiful
